Because of the infancy of podcasting, its effectiveness and acceptance as an educational tool is not well understood. After providing an overview of podcasting technologies and current uses of podcasting in higher education, this paper will present the results of a study that investigates students’ potential acceptance of podcasting as an educational tool. The survey, which was based on constructs from the Technology Acceptance Model (Davis et al. 1989), was administered in early 2006 to graduate Management Information Systems students. Results suggest that students perceive podcasting to be a useful educational tool, but they question its potential effectiveness in improving their performance as student-learners.
